In part two, I continue talking about the most effective lifestyle changes we can make to minimize disease risk factors.

Part one of this show focused on the benefits of getting regular blood work done and what to specifically look out for in blood tests, as well as the importance of glucose monitoring and tracking testosterone frequently. I also shared some of the best ways to track cardiovascular disease risk and this week, we’re picking up where we left off. The episode starts with some more important information related to blood work and testosterone levels, which then segues into the topic of optimizing sauna use. I also discuss the ideal ways to help your body recover from workouts and the best exercises for building greater androgen receptor density (as well as why this plays a big role in male hormone health).

TIMESTAMPS:

It is important to get a good look at your blood going beyond the perfunctory annual exam. [01:29]

Be sure to get your testosterone level checked regularly. The higher the count, the better. [02:35]

If you have greater androgen receptor density then you can thrive on a lower testosterone level.  You build that with strength training. [06:33]

Often there is misunderstanding about free testosterone vs. bound testosterone. [07:41]

Testosterone is also extremely important for female health and vitality. [09:46]

The digital stimulation that happens at night, such as watching TV or working on the computer, are things that spike cortisol and make it more difficult for transition into restful sleep. [14:25]

There are many other lifestyle things beside poor sleep that can harm your health that you are unaware of.  This includes ingesting plastic, living in pollution. [18:46]

Sauna provides wonderful benefits for many of your ailments. The goal is to sweat profusely. [21:58]

Clean up your home environment by using eco-friendly cleaning products. [24:54]

Look at your evening habits and your overall stress management habits. Where can you improve?  [26:33]

Bad dietary choices can cause flare ups such as sore joints, dry, patchy red skin, mild arthritis, gas, bloating, and other digestive problems. [30:59]

How are you dealing with stress? You need to unwind after workouts. [34:12]

Persistent nasal congestion can be due to food or environmental allergies. [37:58]

Overtraining is stressful on the body and you may not realize it. Check on the diet in relation to your training.  [40:28]

SUCCESS STORIES

The MOFO Mission (you should choose to accept it!) is off and running and lives are changing.

MOFO has been nothing short of an incredible addition to my daily life. After a few days of taking this stuff, I started noticing higher energy levels throughout the day (and focus), increased libido (no joke!!), and better sleep (didn’t expect this at all!), not to mention better performance in the gym. I was finally able to break through a deadlift plateau and pull a 605lb deadlift, more than triple my body weight of 198 pounds! I was astonished because other than the MOFO supplement (and it’s positive, accompanying side effects) nothing else had changed in my daily routine in order to merit this accomplishment. I’m a big believer in MOFO and personally, I like to double dose this stuff at 12 capsules per day. The more the merrier!”

TJ QUILLIN

28, Union Grove, AL. Marketing director and powerlifter.

“I’ve been taking MOFO for several months and I can really tell a
difference in my stamina, strength, and body composition. When I
started working out of my home in 2020, I devised a unique strategy
to stay fit and break up prolonged periods of stillness. On the hour
alarm, I do 35 pushups, 15 pullups, and 30 squats. I also walk around
my neighborhood in direct sunlight with my shirt off at midday. My
fitness has actually skyrockted since the closing of my gym!
However, this daily routine (in addition to many other regular
workouts as well as occasional extreme endurance feats, like a
Grand Canyon double crossing that takes all day) is no joke. I need
to optimize my sleep habits with evenings of minimal screen use
and dim light, and eat an exceptionally nutrient-dense diet, and
finally take the highest quality and most effective and appropriate
supplements I can find.”
